I dont know why, but during the hot summers i absolutely love to make ice coffee. There is nothing better than to be sitting in the sun on a Sunday afternoon, and enjoying a ice coffee. One of life`s little pleasures i guess.
Below you will find 3 absolute amazing ice coffee recipes, that i thought i would share with you.
I truly hope you will try one of them out next time the sunshine is hitting your face.
The simple (and “healthy”)
As the name suggests, it does not require many fixes or ingredients to brew this iced coffee. So if you want a quick chill in the sun without having to spend too long in the kitchen, this one is a good bet.
All you need is:
- Chilled or freshly brewed coffee
- Ice cubes
- (Tube) sugar
After that it is easy to get started:
- Fill a glass with ice cubes.
- Pour 1-2 cups of coffee into the glass. I usually brew a double espresso shot in the glass, but filter coffee or Aeropress can also easily be used. If you use freshly brewed coffee, the ice cubes will of course melt quickly, so have some. extra ice cubes ready to supplement with in the end.
- If you have a sweet tooth or you usually use sugar in your coffee, mix it with the ice cubes and coffee now. Cane sugar can be recommended if it is in stock.
- Pour approx. 2-3 dl of milk in. I have usually used mini or light milk, but if you want a slightly more sweet / full flavor, you can possibly. Use whole milk.
- Enjoy your ice coffee.
The coffee can also easily be made black if you are not into milk in the coffee. Then you also catch more of the shades of coffee. In that case, just pour more coffee in place of the milk.
If you need an iced coffee that is a little more “solid” in taste, there is also an offer for it. It is one of my personal favorites and is also relatively simple to make.
What you need is:
- A blender
- Ice cubes
- vanilla ice cream
- Your favorite coffee and a tall glass
The procedure is actually super simple – everything is just in the blender:
- You put 4-5 ice cubes in the blender followed by 1 slice of vanilla ice cream, corresponding to approx. 100 ml (you can vary it yourself according to your taste needs).
- Add approx. 1 dl milk (here you can easily settle for mini or light milk, as the ice cream provides enough filling).
- Finish pouring approx. 1-2 dl (depending on strength) of freshly brewed coffee in. I usually use a double espresso shot, but your own favorite brew also does the trick, be it filter, Aeropress or anything third.
- Blend it all until it has the right consistency. If it is too viscous, you can add a little more milk and blend again.
- Pour on glass and enjoy – possibly. with whole ice cubes.
If you need to go the line completely, here comes a not quite healthy recipe for a rather fantastic iced coffee that can calorically equal a meal.
The ingredient list is a bit longer than the previous ones – but worth it:
- A blender
- Vanilla ice cream
- Ice cubes
- Oreo cookies
- whipped cream to the top (those on spray cans are a little easier to handle)
- chocolate syrup – not a must.
- Your favorite coffee and a tall glass.
Although the ingredient list is a bit longer, the procedure is almost as simple as “The Classic”, as it all just needs to be blended (except for the whipped cream).
- Put 4-5 ice cubes in the blender, followed by 1 slice of vanilla ice cream (about 100 ml).
- Pour 1 cup milk (mini or low-fat milk is sufficient).
- Crack 4 Oreo cookies in half and add.
- If you have chocolate syrup (possibly caramel), then pour 1 tbsp. in.
- Pour 1-2 dl (depending on the strength) of your favorite coffee into your own brewing desire. Again, I usually use a double espresso shot.
- Blend ingredients until desired consistency – add any. with extra milk and blend again.
- Pour on glass and enjoy – possibly. with whole ice cubes – and top with whipped cream if you wish.
I added a little bonus recipe, because i remembered i received this drink in a little cafe in Italy, a while back. Tasted amazing, so i naturally wanted to share it with you guys.
- Start brewing the espresso. It should start with floating in a bold beam and then stop when the beam becomes thin and almost transparent.
- Then fill a large 35 cl. glass up with ice cubes
- Pour your freshly brewed espresso into the glass of ice cubes
- Then pour 2 cl of cane sugar syrup into the same glass
- Top the glass with ice-cold milk
- Stir with a straw
- Enjoy your ice coffee and make a new one.
